Papaya Jam is a traditional Cameroonian recipe for a classic jelly, made with papaya and lemon juice, that is traditionally served with bread.
- Peel the papaya, de-seed and slice thinly. Add to a medium bowl and toss with the lemon juice and sugar to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to sit over night in refrigerator.
- The following day, add the mixture to a mortar and pound to a paste or purée in a food processor. Transfer to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Continue cooking until all the moisture has evaporated, then spoon into hot, sterilized canning jars and seal with lids and rings.
- Allow to cool to room temperature, and refrigerate any jars that do not seal. Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
